“Science cannot answer you one question: Why are you on this earth? What is the purpose of your life? What is the goal of your life? We are now facing a problem that people say ‘we have no identity’. This instrument supposing is not connected to the mains, how will it have its own identity, how will it work?
What’s the use without this connection? In the same way, it happens to us, when we are not connected to this power which has created us, we have no identity, we have no real purpose. We do this thing, and do that, we don’t understand. We are born here, just make some money, and die. There isn’t any purpose that we can see clearly. Only after this connection is established we can know what is the purpose of our life is. And the purpose of our life is to enter into the Kingdom of God. That is the purpose.
We have become human beings, up to a stage and now, we have to enter into the Kingdom of God, where you know the absolute Truth, everybody knows the same truth, if God is one, then why should there be so many truths, somebody says ‘Capitalism is good’, somebody says ‘Socialism is good’, somebody says ‘Communism is good’, I mean all kinds of things, and they fight, on that point. But nobody knows the absolute Truth. And once you know the absolute Truth, then there is no discussion, no argument, no fights.”
